Community Fundraising

If you are planning to hold a Street Stall on Shire owned or managed land, you will need to apply for a permit.

Street Stall Permits are issued to charitable organisations, local non-profit groups and other organisations whose activities will benefit local community.

Charitable organisations are those who use the proceeds from their fundraising activities to relieve poverty, suffering or social distress. Non-profit groups generally provide a service to the community and aim to enhance the wellbeing of residents.

First consideration for permits will always be given to local groups and charities.

Street Stalls - What do I need to know?

To hold a street stall such as raffle tickets sales, cake sales or to hold a sausage sizzle on Shire owned or managed land you will need to complete the Street Stall Application for Shire Approval.  Please read the Street Stall Guidelines prior to submitting your application

Door Knocks

Door knocks on private property are regulated by the Fundraising Act 1998, which sets out the legal requirements for fundraising, e.g. registration and the need for collectors to wear appropriate identification at all times.

Intersection Collections

A highway collection permit is required for anyone wishing to collect money on Victorian roads. 

The Mornington Peninsula Shire will not provide approval for intersection collections on Shire owned or managed roads, as these permits are issued by the Victorian Police.

Should you still wish to collect at an intersection or road, please apply directly to Victoria Police using the following link
